Default Chrysler plans for 400+ hp V6

Chrysler plans for 400+ hp V6

November 6th, 2009 by DaveAdmin

By 2014, Chrysler could have a V6 engine pushing out over 400 horsepower, according to charts in the five year plan. A three-liter version of the Pentastar V6 with dual turbochargers is charted out in the plan at around 425 horsepower, the same as the old 426 Hemi V8 and similar to the current 6.1 liter Hemi V8. While the 6.4 liter Hemi V8 would push out more horsepower, the V6 would, even with a single turbocharger, match the 5.7 liter Hemi V8. Torque has not been discussed.
The Pentastar V6 was designed to have variable cam timing and direct injection. It will debut (without direct injection) on the Jeep Grand Cherokee around May 2010. The higher-horsepower varieties discussed in the plan would include MultiAir and would be released by or in 2014. Before then, the Pentastar would have replaced all other Chrysler V6 engines.
A turbocharged version of the World Engine with direct injection also appears on the chart putting out around 300 horsepower, more than the standard 3.3 or 3.6 liter Pentastar V6. Fiat's 1.4 liter engines were shown at a respectable 150 horsepower with turbocharging, 100 hp without. Chrysler has already sold a turbocharged version of the World Engine, in the Caliber SRT4.

I like what I am hearing, but at the same time, I am hearing the death of the massive, rumbling V8 engines I have come to love. I guess I could get used to 400+ hp in a V6 though...

There's no replacement for displacement.

A turbo World Engine? Now that's interesting. I'm familiar with the 4 cyl. 2.4L 16V world engine. Guess I have some reading to do, 'cause I didn't know they had actually expanded on that. Something has to beat 172hp @ 165 lb/ft! As far as the new V-6, can I put my order in now???

Turbos, Superchargers, Nitrous to name a few. I think this phrase died in the late 80's when turbos made there way into quite a few vehicles. The only people who I've heard hold onto this saying are the mustang guys who refuse to race to turbo'ed cars.

Hell, I had a 3000GT (not a turbo mind you) and many of those guys (with the V6 twin turbo) were running 450 hp in a street set up, and driving it regularly with pump gas. And this is on a 13 -18 year old engine. Given some of the new technology this is a very practical. And still get better gas mileage than our trucks. The only thing you are loseing is some of the low end torque, so it isn't ideal for hauling.

Why wouldn't it be good for the 'mom' type? They drive big SUVs with 400 hp. They also drive Porsche Cayenne and high end BMWs and Mercedes. Having to use synthetic oil is not a big draw back for a lot of people.
